This new publication is timely in Vaughan’s centenary year and, along with a number of exhibitions, will help generate renewed interest in this key British artist. The result of many years of research, it is the first comprehensive illustrated record of all the known oil paintings produced from 1946 to 1977. The catalogue has been compiled from the artist’s records by dealer and Vaughan expert Anthony Hepworth.
In an accompanying critical essay, Ian Massey – author of the acclaimed Patrick Procktor: Art and Life considers the stylistic and technical development of Vaughan’s work over three decades from the post-war period when he first concentrated fully on painting.

More than 600 paintings are documented in detail. Fine
